The original Avengers are here in our present…and they are NOT happy with what they’ve found! Now the Agents of Atlas face the wrath of repulsors, stings, hammers and shields. Just as The Uranian is close to understanding what’s really happening, he’s faced with his greatest threat: himself! Marvel Boy arrives, and behind him, the biggest threat is still on the way.

    The art by Gabriel Hardman and Elizabeth Breitweiser creates an attractive battlefield where all the costumed champions fight at their best. Repulsor rays blaze through panels. Electricity crackles from M-11. Atlantean sinew flexes as mutant wings carry Namora through the air. Simian facial expressions accompany crack-wises against Iron Man's future self. Jimmy Woo's martial arts play out against the moves of the ultimate soldier. Venus' nude beauty manifests in her song. Witty and beautiful, Avengers vs. Atlas is a winner. Read Full Review

    The backup by Scott Kurtz and Zach Howard, while brief, was effective, efficient, and quite funny. I've enjoyed Kurtz's sense of humor for years now (I first encountered it on a panel dedicated to the memory of Mike Wieringo in Baltimore in 2007) but haven't read anything from him in the superhero vein. "Nom. Nom. Nom." That's all I can say about this story that Kurtz jams full of action, adventure, humor, and irony. Howard delivers a fantastically ominous hibachi scene that is filled with peril for our man Jimmy Woo. It's the perfect backup to a perfect main story: both filled with fun, excitement, great characters, and laugh out loud (or at least audibly chuckle) humor. Read Full Review
